Watch: Does Toby Keith push too far with 'American Ride' video?
No one looks to Toby Keith to be politically correct, but has he gone too far in his video for new single, "American Ride?" The song is an often-clever/bordering-on-novelty commentary on the United States and our economic situation, how we deal with terrorists, immigration, our litigious nature, global warming, religion and even the Donald Trump/Miss USA scandals.
No one is spared in the animated video, not George Bush, not Barack Obama, and most importantly, not ourselves. Keith has never given a crap about being politically correct, but he's probably going to catch flak here for one sequence that shows an Arab-looking man stopped at security as he tries to put a bomb in a shoe even though he's commenting on the ludicrous travel restrictions more than anything else.
